Day by Day

I had a lazy day yesterday

I woke up late.  Ate leftovers.  Sat around with the Mrs.  Didn't leave the house.  The most productive thing I did was start a batch of mead, and that hasn't even started bubbling yet.

That was the first real lazy day I've had in a long time.

Addition by Subtraction

So the Seahawks shipped off Percy Harvin to the Jets for what amounted to a bag of peanuts and a hand-shake.  We already went over what was going on in the locker room.  The Seahawks were hurting as a team on the field.

Well, well, well.....  two division games against good teams, and two wins.  Not just wins, but beat-downs.

I wonder just how much getting rid of Percy Harvin is helping this team right now.  When you remove the thorn from your heel, you can run much better.  Percy Harvin was a thorn in Minnesota, and he was a thorn in Seattle.  We don't have all that many receivers right now, but we're obviously much better as a team without Harvin than with him.

Lots of people out right now

Doing their Black Friday shopping.

Not me.  Nuh-uh.  No sir.  I'd rather shave my nutsack with a rabid schnauzer.  Did that last year out of sheer necessity (needed new running shoes), and this year you couldn't pry me out of my house with a team of horses.  Unless it's to the range, because shooting things is fun.  So OK, maybe some range time, while every one else is off doing their Black Friday nonsense.

But for me, Friday is sleeping in, brewing, bottling what is ready, and just generally not getting out of my PJs unless I really want to.  Screw this Black Friday shit.  You want to know why it's called "Black" Friday?  Because that's the color your soul turns as you fight your way through the crowds, trying to save money on crap you don't need.

We just spent a day being thankful.  Do we now need a day of screaming "GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE"?

The Modern Day Leftist



You can just feel the insanity bleeding from your screen.  Don't get any on ya!

More riots last night

And I'm kind of at the point of saying "Meh.  Let the place burn".

I feel sorry for the business owners and shop keepers who are losing their livelihood to groups of thugs and criminals.  I truly do.  But over the past two decades I have been called everything but a white boy by the very same types of people who are now running feral through the streets.  I wish that those business owners were standing in front of their stores with rifles, and putting down the thugs who are destroying them.  I wish that the culture of St. Louis didn't allow for feral thugs to run through the streets while screaming about how Whitey is horrible.  But what I truly wish was that the culture of Ferguson didn't go off the rails when a dope-smoking thug who robbed a store and bounced the store owner off the wall and then attacked a cop, ended up getting shot for his violent actions.

Other than that, I really can't muster much emotion about it any more.

No Indictment for Darren Wilson

So naturally the vibrant youth of Ferguson, MO loot and burn.

If one of my business were burned, I would not rebuild there.  I would not repair.  I would salvage anything I could, and I would leave a burned out structure to remind people that if they don't want civilization, they don't get civilization.  And then I would get the hell out and never go back.

This poor bastard is probably wishing he'd never heard of Ferguson.  First his store gets robbed by a giant thug, and now it gets looted after that giant thug got shot while he assaulted a cop.

Here is the end result of LBJ's "Great Society".  Here is the end result of decades of Democrat policies.  Like the result?

Marion Barry died on Sunday

I didn't want to post anything, because that wouldn't have been nice on a Sunday.

Marion Barry was a crack-smoking, prostitute screwing corrupt asshole.  He was an actual misogynist, not the fake kind that feminists keep yelling about.  He proved just how stupid the voters in D.C. are when the re-elected him after he got out of jail for his drug-fueled whoring.  He was the epitome of every single negative stereotype you could have about a politician.

Naturally, he was a Democrat American Communist Party hero.

I wish he'd actually come around and smartened up before he died, but in the end I'm glad he's no longer screwing things up here on earth.  If that makes me a bad person, so be it.  But I cannot mouth empty platitudes about someone who just kept screwing things up by his arrogance, his greed, and his pride.

Chuck Hagel out as SecDef?

Well, he did the job Obama hired him to do - gut the military as much as possible while mouthing empty platitudes about a strong force.

Now under the bus he goes!

Can you imagine

What Russell Wilson could do if he had receivers on his team?

I mean seriously here, did anyone else know who Cooper Helfet was before yesterday?  Not me.  I've been rooting for the Seahawks since the mid-80s, and I didn't even know Cooper Helfet was a football player.  Now he's catching a touchdown for the Seahawks.

Hopefully he can catch a bunch more, because we need people who can actually catch the ball

Last Sunday after Petecost

Advent starts next week.



Don't even bother to look at the screen.  Just plug this into your speakers and turn it up, then close your eyes and listen to how joyous this song is.
